Thank you, no problem at all. I do greatly appreciate the assistance!
It ran fine completely stock with no timing adjustments( I reset the CMOS upon installation), then I overclocked it and the memory to see what it would do. It did well but one core got too hot(65c) running at 3000 MHz.

I'm glad to answer any other questions you may have.
EDIT: I raced with it OC'd to 3000 MHz for awhile...that is one of my main stress testing methods.

I'd go back to basics and work on your RAM starting from scratch (as well as down-clocking your CPU and HT Bus Freq, to take them out of the equation), with default clocks and timings. You change only one setting at a time, then test for stability (using whatever method suits you). This way may be pathetically slow, but it's guaranteed that if you run into a problem, you'll know exactly which setting threw the whole thing off the rails.

Good luck.
you are correct, that is what I did when I tried OCing the Opty with single channel RAM. Normally I do it a little at a time (10 MHz FSB at a pop)

SLI DR . This expert looks like the owner don't know what he/she actually has.

These are not mine and I know to post my for sale items in the for sale section. I just figured I would let my 939 peeps know about these first.

Ny_driver, as the others have said, take everything back to stock and start over. Yes it sucks and it's a pain in the butt, but you've got to start somewhere. As Joe suggested, starting with the memory wouldn't be a bad idea since that is where your problem lies. Personally, I'd start with just 1 stick in, test it, OC it and see how it does. Then put everything back to stock and put 2 sticks in, make sure they're underclocked. Make sure your timings are on auto and it's 2T CR.
Each step you OC, it would be ideal to stress test. I use S&M v1.9.1 to test the CPU, memtest for RAM and Prime95 to test both working together. All of these can be found in the first post of this thread.
As for using a game to test stability, only if you've run those other 3 tests first. What can wind up happening is that you corrupt the game itself.
As for how long to test, for each "step" I try to run prime95 for at least 10-15 minutes. Then once I get to an overclock I try to keep, I prime it for a minimum of 16 hours.

Good Luck

You mean for me to do all this in single channel mode right? because the chip won't allow dual channel.....remember I tried it in another mobo with different memory.
I will probably do that tomorrow, but I already bought a new chip (89w 4400+ toledo) so I'm not really that concerned with overclocking the Opty now that it's partially broken. I am, however, concerned with possibly getting the Opty repaired. I'm sure it will still run a system nicely on only single channel memory, but I need to test it and make sure that it's not damaged worse than I think, before I do anything else I guess.

and on a side note...I believe I did corrupt my GTLegends installation testing with it, because my cars now no longer have a tachometer needle. I was wondering about that. Thanks for the tip.

EDIT: dang it I just ran S&M on my 3700@ 2.75 GHz and failed. I'm not sure why, I know it's not from getting too hot(44c)....I ran prime for 5 hours the other night @ 2.86 GHz with no errors. It runs flawlessly at 2.75 GHz..... hmmmmmm??

Which test did it fail? Usually if it fails the L1 cache test, you need more voltage. If it fails L2 cache or FPU, it's usually because of temps. BTW, the FPU test WILL get it the hottest, be sure to keep aclose eye on temps.


__________________________________________________ _______________

A little 939 update of my own. So I finally gotaround to testing my opty after the power failure. The board that it was on , at stock speeds, it would fail prime after 51 mins. Come ot find out that, that damn Hyper X RAM is causing instability. Because the reference clock doesn't stay constant, it usually fluctuates upwards ~1 MHz, causes the RAM to destabilize. :swearing: That damn RAM.
At any rate, I swapped the board and RAM out for the other Ultra-D. Passed 3 hours of Prime @ stock, now I'm testing it @ 2640 @ 1.344v. So far it's 1/2 an hour stable at this speed/voltage. I think I might see how high she'll really go, stabily.
I'll also post up a mini CPU cooler comparison when I get back from the store.
